I will keep my review short and vague to keep from spoiling the book, so it might not make a lot of sense. However, the blurb does a great job of keeping things vague, and I think that’s how you need to go into reading this. You might think you have things pegged while reading, but Ward is going to show you that not everything is as it appears.
Things seem off from the very beginning, but you keep reading because you want those puzzle pieces to fit into place. We get multiple points of view in this, which helps to give us the complete picture of what is really going on. I recommend not reading many reviews before you start this because a lot of them spoil the plot. Know you’re reading a horror/slow creeping mystery/thriller, and run with it. Thank you, Macmillan-Tor, for sending this along!

About the Book:
In a boarded-up house on a dead-end street at the edge of the wild Washington woods lives a family of three.
A teenage girl who isn’t allowed outside, not after last time.
A man who drinks alone in front of his TV, trying to ignore the gaps in his memory.
And a house cat who loves napping and reading the Bible.
An unspeakable secret binds them together, but when a new neighbor moves in next door, what is buried out among the birch trees may come back to haunt them all.
